Had a fantastic dinner here this evening! Outstanding waitress, attentive to details, friendly, and observant. The food was wonderful. I enjoyed savoring the more delicate feel of good, fresh Japanese food rather than the overwhelming palette some places present by overusing what are perceived to be Japanese cuisine flavors. Everything was delicious, and the recommended hot sake was also perfect and affordable. Would love to go back.
Mediocre flavor across the board. Ramen tasted like straight soy sauce. However, the service and cozy aesthetic of this restaurant were great. It would be a great spot if the food was better.
I've been here twice and have some mixed feelings. On one hand there's an air of authenticity to the place. Some of the staff working here are Japanese - including the guy behind the sushi bar when I stopped in for lunch. It's a nice touch that they have food sample displays in the front of the store like you find at many restaurants in Japan. The staff are all friendly. I've had the tonkatsu here and thought it was pretty respectable. There are certain things they don't have on their lunch menu - including a la carte nigiri. At least as of the time of writing (April '23) they have a "Set B Lunch" with sushi, but I honestly wouldn't recommend it. Nori on the hand roll was soggy, the nigiri was so-so and heavy on the rice, and the roll you get with it is too big to eat in one bite. I think that whole thing could use a re-vamp. I'd be curious to swing by again around dinner time and see if it's a different experience.
Very good price for ramen and lunch menu, we actually finished everything we ordered! My son says 5 stars !
Eat at this place! The chirashi for lunch is incredible. Had three pieces of fatty tuna and uni plus many other pieces of fresh fish.
